will listen to first lady michelle obama. joe biden speaking earlier working to humanize and personalize this story much the way michelle did for barack obama earlier this week. we heard as well from illinois senator dick durbin, he introduced the nation to a pretty obscure illinois state senator barack obama relatively unknown back in 2008. vice president biden talked a bit about barack obama of course but what i thought was quite emotional as he said we talked about his life and dr. jill by then pointed to him and she said that it took her five times before she would marry him and that he was the love of her life. a huge cheer went up here all lot of emotion when it gabby gifford said recited the pledge of allegiance. everyone seems to be crying. i looked in the handicapped area and people were cheering for her as she walked across the stage and recited the pledge of allegiance escorted by her friend the democratic chairwoman. incredible emotion in this room and there certainly playing on a motion a great deal tonight. husbands speaking of the love for their wives and joe biden talking

convention speeches and maybe not the best convention speech of the week, a distinction michelle obama or president clinton could make. because of realities, the president decided that had to trump soaring rhetoric. >> madam chairwoman, delegates, i accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> reporter: facing the political fight of his life, the 44th president of the united states made the case for his re-election, asking americans to stick with him for another four years despite tough economic times. >> our problems can be solved, our challenges can be met. the path we offer may be harder but it leads to a better place, and i'm asking you to choose that future. >> reporter: four years later the president felt he had to appeal to voters exhausted by the tone of american politics. >> i know campaigns may seem small, even sill sly sometimes. trivial things become big attractions. if you're sick of me approving this message, believe me, so am i. >> reporter: but obama pulled no punches when it came to his republican rival. his references to opponent turned him into a pun

, both ann romney and michelle obama were sensational in their respective conventions. with me too talk first families and other presidential politics, former democratic senator and governor of indiana evan bayh and republican congressman michael grim. senator, welcome. congressman, you were almost caught in the tornado today. >> yes, i was out there meeting constituents at block parties in brooklyn. >> the tornado hit your district. the nerve. >> absolutely. right there. >> geraldo: it was weird and i'm glad it didn't amount to much. so listen, the first ladies. what role did they play and do you think they are significant? congressman, you first? >> i do think they were significant. both as you said, sensational. both delivered fantastic speeches but i think they play a very important role and i think the challenge is a little bit greater for mrs. romney. and that is her role is really to humanize and show the softer side of someone that does come across like a c.e.o. which by the way i think the country needs desperately is the c.e.o. type. >> geraldo: i newt you wer thoe going to sa

and their respective wives, jill biden and michelle obama. one key for the president here is to try to convince independent voters to stick with them but that hill got a little bit higher to climb with the jobs numbers coming out this morning, 96,000 jobs provided during the month of august, for every job provided four other americans gave up looking for work. here is the president speaking last night at the convention, encouraging people to stick with him. >> if you buy into the cynicism that the change we fought for isn't possible, well, change will not happen. if you give up on the idea that your voice can make a difference then other voices will fill the void, the lobbyists and special interests, the people with the ten million dollars checks who are trying to buy this election. >> reporter: never mind that the democratic national convention just like the republican convention was chalked full with special interest and corporate interest paying for musicians, parties, booze, you name it. one difficulty tee is that the mitt romney campaign is releasing a barrage of attack ads in eight swing

of fell flat on the heels of michelle obama's speech but, of course, david axelrod and campaign aides have done the same thing saying they didn't think they were going to get much of a bounce out of the convention anyway. on the heels of these two conventions, we are nowhere different than where we were before the convention, very even going into the debates. we'll have a very level playing field on october 3rd. >> heather: president obama was given a heads-up as to what this jobs report would be prior to his speech which is normal. he knew it was coming. he is campaigning today in florida, a state with the highest elderly population and unemployment rate of 8.8%. there is four key battleground states where the unemployment elevated above the national average. we mentioned florida, in nevada, 12%, north carolina, where they had the dnc. 9.9%. michigan, 9%. 735 delegates up for grabs among those states. how does the obama campaign win them over with job reports like friday's? >> what they are doing is running a very specific state by state campaign. so when you talk about michigan, presiden
